Disturbing: Young people threaten suicide if Obama, Romney elected
In a rather morbid turn of events, a disturbingly high number of young people have taken their displeasure with Obama and Romney to an extreme level and are claiming that they will kill themselves if their preferred candidate loses the election next month.
Some say they won’t be able to cope if Obama wins reelection:
I swear to God if 25 ppl can give me a legit reason as to why they’re voting for Obama I will kill myself (favorite this)

A handful of Twitterers seem to be under the bizarre impression that Romney will ban tampons if elected and see that as reason enough to kill themselves:
If Romney takes away tampons I will kill myself

Forgive us if we fail to see the humor in threats of suicide. Joking about ending your life is shameful; suicide is not to be taken lightly.
If Romney becomes president I’ll seriously kill myself u feel me

If Romney wins and gets rid of student loans I’ll probably kill myself. Not even joking
— Sammi Salvatore (@SammiSalvatore) October 9, 2012
A few people suggest that they’ve been considering killing themselves for some time and plan to use the election results as an excuse to follow through:
I really really really want Romney to win. And then I’ll have a reason to kill myself.
— pisaπ (@awizapiza) October 9, 2012
I hope Mitt Romney becomes president so I’ll have a semi-valid reason to kill myself.

While it’s unlikely that all of the Twitterers spotlighted are seriously contemplating suicide, some very well may be. To those whose intentions are genuine, we urge that you seek help. No election is worth ending your life over.
